Difference between the Centrifugal and Axial Flow Compressor?

 Difference between the Centrifugal and Axial Flow Compressor.

Centrifugal Compressor:

  • In Centrifugal Compressor the air flows in the radial direction.
  • The pressure ratio gained is 4.5.
  • This is compact for the unit of given pressure ratio.
  • It  required less torque at Starting
  • It is simple and Cheap in construction.
  • It can get up to 400 bar in delivery pressure.
  • It has more flexible during operation.
  • About 80% of thermal efficiency has occurred.
  • For multistage compressor it is less suitable.



Axial Flow Compressor:




  • In this the flow is in Axial direction.
  • The pressure ratio is gained about 1.2.
  • This is less compact for a given pressure ratio.
  • It required more torque at starting.
  • It is complex and costly in construction.
  • It can get up to 20 bar in delivery pressure.
  • It is Less flexible during the operation.
  • About 88% of thermal efficiency has occurred.
  • It is more suitable for the multistage compressor.
